Tarnished Hexagons

Hi!  How are you today?  I hope doing well.  Today I have a few cards featuring a few of the products in the Urban Underground Suite and playing along with this week’s Case the Designer over at Global Design Projects #GDP072 – I rotated the sketch for my cards.  I hope you like them!

SU! Window Dressing, Urban Underground

First up is this Thanks card.  I went back to the Tarnished Foil technique shown in this post.   It is a fun technique and I love the texture it adds to the card.  The sentiment is from the Window Shopping stamp set and is embossed in silver.  The Designer Paper is from the Urban Underground Specialty Pack.  I added a bit of Silver thread behind the sentiment – that is wrapped around my fingers a few times and adhered to the back of the sentiment using snail.  I then pulled and pushed to make it a little less studied.

The second card is a birthday card – I have quite a few male birthdays in the family this month – and think some of them will appreciate this card.

After embossing the panel in the Thanks Card – I realized I wanted more of the StaZon to show – so I applied more of it to the foil before embossing for this card.  I love the mix of the silver tin foil, the black StaZon and the copper embossing.  The sentiment is also from the Window Shopping stamp set.  On this one, I added the metal stars from the Urban Underground Embellishment pack.

I hope you enjoyed today’s projects!

Thanks for stopping by!

    1. Yes it is – just remember after you apply your embossing powder the first time – tap off all excess and put it back in the jar – then use a paint brush to remove any excess powder and throw that away as it will be clumpy and not good to re-use. Have fun and let me know if you try it!

  1. Ooooh! What a beautiful effect from this incredible technique. Great card! Thanks for playing along with this week’s CASE the Designer Challenge at the Global Design Project!
